AfriChair Drive - Cape to Cairo

“Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.”
― Chinua Achebe (Author)
(colonialism, eloquence, history-of-mankind, proverb)
This podcast seeks to unapologetically confine to Black Consciousness and Pan-Africanism with an intention to have the story of Africa spoken by an African.

Episode 1: The Controversy Sarrounding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

The GERD is marked with a lot of controversy. Ethiopia has been constructing and filling up the Dam on the Blue Nile which starts in Ethiopia, just less than 30km on the Sudannese boarder. The Blue Nile joins the White Nile in Khartoum, Sudan and flows as a Nile into Egypt. Egypt depends on the water from the Nile and is arguing that the upstream Ethiopia is going to restrict its natural water rights based on colonial agreements made by Great Britain in the 1920s and 1950s. Ethiopia argues that it contributes 80% of the Blue Nile waters and has a right to that water and has thus constructed the biggest dam in Africa will provide more than 6K Megawatts of power. Sudan is caught in between. The tripatite deliberations hit a snag as well last week. USA through Donal Trump has stopped more than US100M in aid towards Ethiopia until she signs the deal, and futher said that Egypt will bomb the GERD!
